Bordetella Pertussis IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 12 July, 2017.


Human Bordetella pertussis IgG ELISA kit is a procedure for measuring in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG antibodies to Bordetella pertussis using either plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.98 U/ml.


Bordetella pertussis is a causative agent of whooping cough and humans are its only host. It is found to reside in the bronchi and the trachea (upper air pathways) and the pathogen can be also transmitted from one individual to another through droplets of respiratory secretions (coughing or sneezing into the air). Some of the symptoms of pertussis can be described as those of a common cold for example low-grade fever, sneezing, runny nose and mild cough. In medicine, many vaccines that have been developed use Bordetella pertussis in order to combat a number of deadly childhood diseases (such as whooping cough).


The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to Bordetella pertussis using current human Bordetella pertussis IgG ELISA kit was 0.98 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 IU/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
